Ok so 2011 was the last year of my Bachelor’s degree in Architectural Studies, and my final studio assignment brief was to deal to one of Auckland’s big issues! Its suburban context! Suburban Morphosis became a project in which we had a 9 hectare suburban site just outside of Auckland’s CBD, and had to design and create an suburban environment that was different (and hopefully better) than the already existent disastrous excuses of design that are flooding the greater Auckland region like a plague of brick and cladding with a G.J Gardener stamp attached!
My design was based around two great drivers.
A- My European background, and
B- My love of nature, sustainability and the beauty of the existing park site before build.
My answer… Living in the existing park, maintaining its natural beauty, enhancing its natural beauty…PARChitecture! pics to come!
